CMS has advised Porsche on a new EUR 500 million investment round into Rimac that also included, among others, Softbank and Goldman Sachs as new investors. Reportedly, Kunstek Halle & Simac, working with Latham & Watkins, advised Rimac on the deal.
Rimac Automobili is a Croatian electric supercar maker and technology group. Last year, CMS and Kunstek Halle & Simac advised on the formation of a joint venture between Rimac and Bugatti (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on July 8, 2021). An interview featuring both CMS and KHS about the legal work on the Rimac-Bugatti combination is available here.
The CMS team included Partner Marija Zrno-Prosic, Senior Associate Karmen Sinozic, and Lawyers Mario Vrdoljak and Iva Grgic.
